COMMITTEE DESCRIPTION

Here’s a conventional committee with a twist. The UNSC 1988 Sanctions Committee oversees sanction measures imposed by the SC. Inspiring a delegate to go beyond facts, this committee challenges one’s critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. It draws attention towards the on-ground effect of policies that have been implemented. The committee thus, moderates measures such as asset freeze, travel ban and arms embargo; a monitoring team reports periodically to the SC with the assessment of sanction measures. In a world dominated by impulsively imposed sanctions, the Sanctions Committee aims to strengthen and streamline their implementation.

AGENDA

  1. Re-evaluating the following aspects of the Sanctions Committee: enlisting, delisting, and financial mechanisms
  2. Role of the committee in preserving the democratic process, with special reference to the 2019 Afghan Presidential Elections
